Actor Rainn Wilson’s tweet about the anti-Christian bias in the HBO series “The Last of Us” has sparked a conversation about the portrayal of Christians in Hollywood.
Wilson criticized the predictable formula of using Bible verses by a villainous character in the show.
Critics have pointed out that Hollywood’s bias against Christianity is meant to undermine faith and position the secular-minded as the only ones with altruistic intentions.
The portrayal of Christians as the bad guys in TV shows and movies has become a tired cliché, and it is hardly a surprise when a pastor or a Christian character turns out to be evil.
The bias against Christianity in Hollywood is not new, and it has been present for a long time. However, with more and more people speaking out against it, there is hope that things will change.
It is time to move beyond the predictable formula of making Christians the bad guys in TV shows and movies and have a pastor or a Christian character who is actually loving and kind.
